'The municipal government of Anyang has executed "Anyang Art City 21," which is the first policy in the whole country since 2002, in order to transform Anyang into a beautiful and artistic city by systematic administration that promotes construction of excellent buildings satisfying aesthetic and functional standards. The continued efforts have been rewarded with improvements in the urban image and ennoblement of the city...

'The theme of Anyang Public Art Project is "Tipping the Balance," which expresses our will to the social public-ness that inspires creative imagination of art into the city calling for the active participation of all citizens, rather than mere arranging and installing artworks. Watch the evolution of Anyang as a generous and comfortable recreation ground and as an international attraction, making a new model of constructing a public park.' (p. 11)

In the First Anyang Public Art Project (APAP) of 2005, the city of Anyang invites 97 artists and artist groups to partake in a public art project that would transform the city. The catalogue features artists of diverse backgrounds, including Asian artists such as Teruya Yuken and Seung Ha Lee, and European artists such as Tess Jaray and Anri Sala, along with many others. Photographs of each artwork and artist statements are included, as well as essays and photographs of the APAP.
